First attracted by the fact it had more food from more places than GrubHub, I became an Uber Eats enthusiast because you can watch your courier get so very lost on the little map and call them back when they start to reverse down your street.

Treason

Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.

My conclusion: there be treason in progress because cooperation in suborning a national election to advance the political and economic interests of a foreign power sounds like "adhering to" or at least "providing aid," right?

Wrong, according to internet sources, not all of which are to the right. The United States is not in a state of war with the Russian Federation, so Russia is not technically an enemy of America.

First: I sense an area of cooperation between Freedom Caucus Republicans and pretty much any congress critter who supports Russian sanctions if a formal declaration of war is all that stands between the White House and treason charges, because Russia is sure as hell Not Our Friend.

Second: new round of research on how many Americans have been hung out to dry for treason during the Cold War, which was not any kind of formally declared affair.
